Trees grown over road

Hi The B1166 south eau bank between guanockgate road and french drove(B1167). The trees are growing over the white lines on the sides of the roads. It’s been a problem for a couple of years, but I felt I have had to contact you as nothing has been done to them and it is getting very dangerous. Some of the trees that have grown over the road are on blind bends which is making it extra dangerous and chance of a crash due to the trees is high and getting higher as there left to grow. School busses have to use this route and when they meet cars one of them has to stop and give way. If the trees were cut back no one would have to give way. It will only take one person not to give way and there will be a crash. The trees are getting that bad.

I’ve attached a picture of trees hanging over in Throckenholt on the B1166.

I look forward to seeing the trees cut back from the road.

Kind regards
